BCMP(3)			   Linux Programmer's Manual		       BCMP(3)

NAME
       bcmp - compare byte sequences

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

       int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The bcmp() function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length
       n each.	If they are equal, and in particular  if  n  is	 zero,	bcmp()
       returns 0.  Otherwise it returns a nonzero result.

RETURN VALUE
       The  bcmp()  function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherÔÇÉ
       wise a nonzero result is returned.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD.	 This  function	  is   deprecated   (marked   as   LEGACY   in
       POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp(3) in new programs.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the
       specification of bcmp().

SEE ALSO
       memcmp(3),  strcasecmp(3),   strcmp(3),	 strcoll(3),   strncasecmp(3),
